4.0 out of 5 stars Bright and smart, 31 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great colours (blue is really bright), smart and warm. Only criticism is that it would have been nigh on perfect if it had been about 20cm longer. Bought for my 20 yr old son and he wears it regularly - it would have been 'lost' in a drawer if he didn't like it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy!, 23 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We wanted something for 2 lively kittens, to entertain and keep them from attacking the furnishings too much. This is brilliant: they absolutely love it. They climb it at alarming speed, attack all the mice, scratch all the scratching posts, hide in the covered areas and jump out at each other, and then when this has worn them out, they sleep on the perches or any other surface. It is very well used! Excellent value for money. It took about half an hour to put together - the only problems I had was when I didn't pay proper attention to the size of the bolts to use on one of the levels and realising I had to make holes in the furry covering in order to put a couple of bolts through. But other that it was pretty straight forward. I would thoroughly recommend this product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get your hankies ready, 21 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Found it slow to get back into the flow somehow, then wham! Lots of Drama and emotional upheaval - is there such a thing as a happy relationship or person?? Not sure the characters are running true to previous series and the writing is 'bitty'. Nowhere near as compulsive as Grey's Anatomy but still gripping nonetheless.

3.0 out of 5 stars American patterns, 21 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some attractive beanies but th patterns are American and you need to translate the yarn descriptions etc. The patterms are not 'idiot-proof' so not for a beginner. You need to work out how to add stitches evenly etc - a knowledge of knitting is required.

2.0 out of 5 stars No originality and definitely youth fiction, 21 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: First Frost (Kindle Edition)
Really disappointed - the simplistic prose is so unnecessary - teenagers are not stupid. I am an Elemental Assassin series fan so thought I would try this as a taster for the series - (as some teen fiction is readable - Kelly Armstrong is a good example). Ms Estep already writes in a very accessible way so she did not need to 'dumb down' her style for a YA audience. My teen daughter also reads and enjoys the Elemental books but found this bland and generic - there are so many other similar story lines on the market.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tortoise run, 15 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have a very young tortoise and this has made a great summer run for it. Have put plastic trellis mess over it and have a happy tortoise. However if you want to move it it comes apart and you have to rebuild it. I am not sure the edges are strong enough to take a large child if it is used as a sandpit - I'm a small adult but I wouldn't risk sitting on it. It also might break if children stand/jump on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it is supposed to., 15 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have had a couple of Dualit mixers but have had to take the last one back as it broke even faster than the first one. So I thought I would by a cheaper one and this one works brilliantly and is not too heavy. It has lasted longer than the Dualit one already. I use it mainly for making all-in-one sponges, and whisking cream and egg whites. I have not taken much notice of the time limit for beating as advised in the instructions and have had no problems.

This review is from: Overexposed (Audio CD)
Not sure I liked this on first listening as I thought I had been cheated out of the real Maroon 5 style. But now it is close to being my favourite of all the albums.

A new series of Grey's means I have to watch all the previous ones to be totally on track for the new one - so I immersed in Grey's for weeks - bliss. Lots of tissues needed. Can't wait for series 8 - hopefully a Christmas present. One of the best tv series around.
